Thy labour rather to be feared than loved,
    To satisfy thy lust in either part,
    Here am I come, and with me have I brought
    Exceeding store of treasure, pearl, and coin.

King John in Shakespeare’s Edward III III.iii.64-7

Technically, there is much academic discussion about whether or not the play, Edward III is either a Shakespeare play or pure Shakespeare play — but the quote fit with some of the stars, and therefore? I call it good enough. Close enough.

Aquarius

The Water Bearer


At first this was going to be about a T-Shirt I saw, but then, I realized the message wouldn’t convert across a broad spectrum of Aquarius. One or two, maybe, would not only understand but appreciate the humor. Therein is the problem, though, with this week’s energy. It’s private, and not broad-based at all. While the intricate nature of the Aquarius mind understands this, once we’re out of the Aquarius comfort zone, essentially the single Aquarius mind itself, once we all leave that headspace?

Yeah, the jokes don’t go over, no one gets the humor, and strained metaphors are lost. The rest of the world, the rest of the non-Aquarius world? They just don’t “get it,” and since I’m not Aquarius myself, I don’t “get it,” either.

Which is the problem. No easy answers except, perhaps to laugh amongst yourself. Surely there is another birthday person close at hand, and you two can share in the merriment. The rest of us? Yeah, a lot of the rest of the other signs, the other energies as depicted by the arrows and symbols? Yeah, a lot, maybe most, if not all? Most of us just don’t see what you find so funny. Well, except for me, I get it, but only part way, and that’s only because I was looking at your stars and I understand that much.

Pisces

Combine disparate elements. Simply put? Take two items that don’t belong next to each other, and put them together. The obvious example? Peanut butter and chocolate. I realize that some of the readers of this web page have an allergy to some stuff, like maybe peanuts, but that’s merely an example. Me? I’m not a fan of chocolate, but again, this is merely an example. Disparate items that don’t usually belong next to each other. Disparate times?

Horoscopes for 1.24.2019

    Sweet now, silence!
    Juno and Ceres whisper seriously;
    There’s something else to do. Hush and be mute,
    Or else our spell is marr’d.

Prospero in Shakespeare’s The Tempest 4.1.123-6

I found this great quote, from the so-called founder of a local chain. Thought it was great. The problem being, when looking, either on the web, or in other stores, I could find no corroborating evidence that it was an actual sentiment from the chain’s namesake. Great idea, excellent inspirational quote, no supporting documentation — whatsoever. I don’t require much, innuendo, hearsay, suggestive titles, hints, and hunches, yes, any of that would work, in this situation. Alas? I got nothing. No other evidence besides a plain piece of paper from — looks like an ink jet printer — with no way to know if it is real — or not real at all. Kind of what I was thinking about, as I’m still trying to get some kind of corroboration, supporting evidence in one form, or another, I don’t much care, but I need to see something, in print, that supports my hunch. Feeling. It’s a feeling, and it felt like it could be true, but then, it also — lack of any evidential support — feels like it might not be true. The total lack of evidence? Kind of supports my theory that it was a made-up quote. Not that I would ever let that get in the way, either. Wasn’t it Shakespeare who said, “Trust not the world wide web?” Happy Aquarius birthday, but check out the evidence before jumping on it.

Pisces

Goals, desire, directions. Wish I was better at that myself, but I’m not Pisces. This is momentary time when we stop, pause, think, and consider. Goals, desire, directions. So the first question is, “What are your Pisces goals?” Second question, kind of obvious, I guess, I make this easy, right? Second question is, “How do your Pisces desires align with those goals?” Finally, there’s the third question, but I think you can easily see this one headed your way, right?

Horoscopes for 1.17.2019

    “The mercy that was quick in us but late,
    By your own counsel is suppress’d and kill’d.
    You must not dare (for shame) to talk of mercy,
    For your own reasons turn into your bosoms,
    As dogs upon their masters, worrying you.
    See you, my princes and my noble peers,
    These English monsters!”

—King Henry V
in Shakespeare Henry V (II.ii.79-85)

Happy Birthday!

Venus aligns briefly with Jupiter, in Sagittarius. Sun moves into Aquarius, January 20, 2019 around 2:59 AM. What that means for the rest of us?

Listening to Henry V, a situation popped up, and made me think about Capricorn. In, I think it’s the first act, of Shakespeare’s Henry V, a group of noble are arrested for treason, plotting to overthrew/assassinate the king (Henry V). Once their plot is uncovered, then the nobles are all “Lord have mercy upon my soul” but where was the request for mercy, before being discovered? It’s like this, I’ll beg forgiveness and act contrite, if I’m caught. If I’m not caught? Yeah, no harm, no foul. Being caught introduces a new element of religion, with a sudden onset of guilt, as well as a willingness towards its acts of contrition, provided, of course, there is substantiating evidence of that guilt. Getting caught introduces a most Christian and pious mature. Getting away with it?

Not so much.

It’s about how we feel about our actions, if we’re caught, if we’re not caught, and how bad the crime is, right? Matter of degrees. Matter of degrees in our Capricorn parts, too. Not a good week to try and “get away with it,” and I’m not preaching, just suggesting. Not a good time, and if you do get caught, against my recommendation? Act contrite.

Take a lesson from me, maybe. My birthday comes right around Thanksgiving, every year (early Sagittarius, that’s me). I get lost in the shuffle of the holidays, wherein what folks tend to do, you know who you are (family), “I got this for your birthday and Xmas…” See how that goes? However, as an Aquarius-compliant astrologer? Take a lesson from me, maybe.
